Do you know Lincoln wanted to send negros back to Africa
Just wonder how many people actually knew this about good old "honest abe"?

Lincoln didn't want blacks staying in America after they were freed. He was an outspoken advocate of what was, at the time, called "colonization," or shipping all the black people back to Africa.

His own words:
"I cannot make it better known than it already is that I strongly favor colonization."

Re: Do you know Lincoln wanted to send negros back to Africa
Lincoln thought to "colonize" freed slaves after the War, in Africa (Liberia) and or South/Central America. He was astounded when the Secretary of the Navy revealed that all the ships in the US Navy (1865) would be unable to carry just the black babies born in that year, back to Africa.

Just watched the new version on Lincoln last night and found some of it to be nonfactual, but it was a work of historical fiction.....

Considering how much whining they do about conditions here, I'm surprised they don't want to go back.

No, at the time even though it would have been an epic undertaking, the country as a whole would have be better off today.

I think you are correct. Even though he didn't want slavery, he did not think blacks and whites were equal as human beings.
